Streaming Video Not Playing
« on: April 15, 2006, 08:01:36 PM »

My friend is trying to view streaming WM video on the Internet but the content just doesn't load for him. He has tried lowering all IE security settings, to no avail. he also tried usng FireFox, with no luck. He has WM Player V.10 (latest etc) and the latest browsers.

Just wondering what could be causing this problem and how to resolve it. Any suggestions?

Thanks very much.

You have Windows XP or Windows 2003. (I would think)
Is it only one video that does not work, or do other videos work and just not the one you want?

If other videos work:
The video you are trying to open may not exist, or the directory may be incorrect.

If no video works:
Try re-installing Windows Media Player
Install updates

The content works as it streams for perfectly and seamlessly. It just doesn't appear for him.

I will tell him to reinstall WM. Maybe that might work.

Thanks. Any other suggestions are much appreciated thanks again.
